Clarks' story began almost 200 years ago when Cyrus and James Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts. At the time it was ground-breaking; a combination of invention and craftsmanship that's remained at the heart of what they do. And whilst now, as always, every pair of Clarks shoes begins with a last carved by hand from a single block of hornbeam, advanced construction techniques, technologies and contemporary materials help deliver perfection tailor-made for the modern world.
Every pair of shoes begins with a last. Carved by hand from a single block of hornbeam, honed and smoothed to perfection, it’s at the heart of Clarks' craft. Always have been, always will be.
